Lecture: Mary the Jewish Mother - Ed Kessler

Monday October 19th at 6 p.m. in De Grey 017

The speaker is Dr Ed Kessler, a Jewish academic in Theology & Religious Studies. The lecture is being sponsored by the Centre for Marian Studies, and admission is free.

Mary is prominent in Christianity as the archetypal 'mother', and she is also celebrated in Islam. But, of course, Mary herself was Jewish, Mariam in Aramaic (Miriam in Hebrew). The lecture explores the figure of Mary from a Jewish perspective.
